This was supposed to be simple. Vengeance was mine. But I should know by now that nothing in life is easy.
My endgame has changed all because I met someone who wishes I was dead. Yet her hatred is the only thing saving her from The Big Bad. My lies protect her, so the harder she hates, the safer she is.
The thing about love and hate—it skates a very thin line. I need to stay away. It’s better for everyone if I do. But fighting this is like fighting nature.
Our paths crossed for a reason, and my Tiger isn’t fooled. Once the smoke clears, she will see every player, including me. I don’t deserve a second chance. But I want one…because I want her. The question is, what happens when the truth is finally revealed?
With the end in sight, I can promise you there will be nothing but violence and mayhem.
Oh yes, blood will be shed.
“My body, my mind, and my heart are lost to him, and I don’t know if they’ll ever be found.”
I really enjoy Monica’s books. She has a voice that just draws me into her stories, and I just get lost in them. Her books are typically a bit out of the box, and a step or two outside your comfort zone.
With Blowback I did struggle a bit at the beginning. It read a bit slow for the first 20 ish percent. I feel like that should be part of the book that is suppose to draw me in. That was my biggest issue with this second part of the duet. With duets and trilogies I am always hard to please. There is typically always filler, and I really don’t like filler. Monica did a good job with not having much filler in this book, but there was still a bit in it. I did enjoy this book overall though, and I can’t wait for what she has coming next.
